1st Communion Cards

 Two of our neighbors' kids made their first communion together.  So, I made them matching cards :-)
The background/frame is D'vine Swirls embossing folder - I embossed and then cut the oval out using Lifestyle Crafts nesting ovals and my Cuttlebug (where would I be without it!)  The cross stamp I got years ago and don't remember who made it, but it was just a single stamp I bought.  I stamped it with SU Creamy Caramel ink and hand-cut it out.  To get the 'light' shining behind it, I flipped the cross over to the backside and chalked from the corners out.  This way I could cover all the area I needed while lining it up just right, and not having to worry about getting chalk on the front of the cross.  Then flip and adhere.

Tools used: Cuttlebug, D'vine Swirls CB embossing folder, SU Creamy Caramel ink, SU Stampin' Pastels, pop-dots.
